government has authorized the use of force and authorized its military to cross the border into syria if necessary. they say that is a warning, not yet a declaration of war. this began midday when a syrian mortar shell landed inside a turkish border village. that killed five people and the response by turkey was almost immediately with responding with retal story shelling, not only shelling but also diplomatically they invoked the defense clause of the nato treaty and called for an emergency meeting in brussels. the other thing turkey has been doing over the past month or so is massing forces along their border, and those forces both the tanks and their artillery was used in artillery barrages that lasted about 18 hours against targets there inside syria. as for the syrians, they say this was an accident, they promise it will not happen again, and it appears as though the syrians have enough problems on their hands, they do not want to start a war with turkey going forward, though, you do have a dangerous dynamic set up here. all of a sudden now curbing key is on a war footing. it is

in government jobs, it is not enough to truly get us out of the hole we're in since how many jobs were lost since the so-called great recession began. we should be well north, of 200, even 300,000 has not been uncommon in recoverrys in the post. think of it as this way. think of a rubberband. the further back i pull it further it should come up. it has come up but nowhere near historically than where we expect it to go. president will take advantage. some are skeptical, maybe, maybe these household numbers will be revised significantly lower but after the election. jon: some people are also very cynical. they're going to say there must have been, the white house must have had its finger on the scale of the counting this time around. do they get involved at all in how these numbers are calculated? >> you know the bureau of labor statistics is a government agency. i'm not sure if they tweaked questioning of households when they ask a survey. but i do know it is extraordinarily fishy. i have a gut feeling it will be revised north of 8%. but that won't happen until we know who is in the white h
